Find Relief With The Top Hip Doctors in New Jersey

The specialty-trained doctors at Performance Rehabilitation & Regenerative Medicine are recognized leaders in the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of hip injuries and conditions. Hip pain is often a condition that has developed over years, such as arthritis or bursitis. More active patients will commonly develop overuse conditions like Iliotibial Band Syndrome, strains or tendonitis resulting from sports or recreational activities. Often however, the exact cause is not always identifiable. Acute or chronic hip conditions can be very painful and limiting.

Common Types of Hip Injuries

The human body has dozens of small lubricating sacs located between bones and soft tissue structures called bursa. Bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa, which is usually the result of another underlying hip condition (e.g. tendonitis or osteoarthritis). Bursitis usually presents with intense pain on the outside of the hip that may progress down the thigh. Patients are unable to side lie on their hip and prolonged standing and walking will increase the symptoms.

There are several types of arthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common, which is characterized by a wearing away of the cushioning cartilage located on the joint surface.  OA is a chronic condition that occurs over many years. Patients will complain of hip stiffness upon rising in the morning, painful or tender joints that may be swollen, or a “crunching” or “popping” sound when moving the hip or leg. Symptoms are worse with standing and walking as well as when transitioning form sitting to standing. Groin pain and thigh pain are also common symptoms associated with OA of the hip.

The ITB is a thick band of connective tissue that runs from the outside of the hip to the outside of the knee. Patients commonly present with pain and tightness at the insertion of the ITB on the knee; however, pain can occur anywhere along the course of the ITB. This injury occurs more often in runners and cyclists with poor foot mechanics and/or weak pelvic muscles.

A hip labral tear is an injury to the labrum, the soft tissue that covers the acetabulum (socket) of the hip. A hip labral tear can be caused by injury, structural problems, or degenerative issues. Symptoms include pain in the hip or stiffness. A hip labral tear can be treated nonsurgically, or with surgery in severe cases.
